Pablo Larrain on the Mystery and Intrigue of Jackie Kennedy

"You can read biographies; you can talk to people who met her; you can read interviews, but you will never know who she really was. She was a woman who had an incredible amount of mystery, and that is always very attractive to cinema."

MovieMaker Magazine talks to Jackie director Pablo Larrain about bringing a foreigner's perspective to this most American story.

"I knew of course who they were and who Jackie was, but I had a very superficial idea about her," Larrain explains about his knowledge of the Kennedys prior to taking on the movie. "I had this idea of this woman who just worried about style and clothes and fashion. Then as soon as I got involved, I started reading and researching, and I discovered one of the most interesting women ever. It’s her level of sophistication. She was a very educated person. She spoke at least four languages. She had an incredible political instinct that I bet a lot of contemporary politicians would love to have at least one-third of—it would be enough for all of them. She had these sensibilities of communication, and she cared about history, which is something I do care about and respect. She was a woman that you could dig and dig and learn [about]. You can read biographies; you can talk to people who met her; you can read interviews, but you will never know who she really was. She was a woman who had an incredible amount of mystery, and that is always very attractive to cinema."
